Can You Find Out When Someone Joins Plenty Of Fish?

Plenty Of Fish is a dating app which is different from the traditional swipe and sort mobile apps. Plenty Of Fish offers different features, such as location based search, messaging people who will respond and seeing if people viewed your profile.

These features can be seen by everyone that’s on the platform. We’re going to breakdown the different features that Plenty Of Fish offers, that way you’re able to see if someone new joins.

Plenty Of Fish Features

We’re going to cover the main features in Plenty Of Fish, to help you find out if someone new joined. There’s a few reasons you may want to see if someone new joined.

  • If you’re a frequent user, new users joining the platform will help add diversity to your dating life
  • Catching other boyfriends or girlfriends on the app that may be potentially cheating. We hope this is the last reason you’re using the dating app, but this list will help you.

Now, let’s dive into the different features on the mobile app where you’re able to determine if there’s any new users


The first and most obvious place to start looking for new users is search. One thing that’s unique about Plenty Of Fish is how powerful it’s search capabilities are.

You’re able to filter our details about what you’re looking for, and at the push of a button have all the profiles that match what you’re looking for. From height, hair color, to even what they’re on the app for, this search feature is perfect.

Of course if you’re a paid user, unlock all of the features to have full access to all of the search capabilities.

We recommend if you’re looking for new users, have filters preset to what exactly your’re looking for, and update it every day. Simply refresh the results and see if anyone new pops up.

What we don’t recommend, is refreshing it every few hours. That will get exhausting overtime if you frequently refresh the feed.

Viewed Me

This tab is significant because you’re able to see people who view your profile. Typically, new users who come on the app will click around from profile to profile trying to see what they like.

The viewed me tab is another great place, if you’re new, to see if there’s new users that are flooding to the platform – whether that be around Valentines day or a special holiday.

Often times, if they’ve used the app for a long time, they’re able to dictate who is new around their area. This often is highlighted by a notification on the “viewed me” tab, as users get a red number badge the minute someone clicks on their profile. This feature is pretty useful in seeing if someone new joined the platform.


Nearby is another powerful feature that Plenty Of Fish offers that other mobile dating apps don’t offer. Other mobile apps such as Hinge, Bumble Or Tinder allow the user to set the radius it will randomly pull users (mostly based off of score) and display them in a “card stack”.

Plenty Of Fish is completely different in the way they approach this feature. They actually show the user rows of 3 profiles, and you’re able to see how far away from you they are.

This is unique because you’re able to see a full list of users that have profiles, and the proximity of your location. The beauty of this, you’re able to see if new people pop up in your area. You don’t have to wait for a new card stack to pop up, users are delivered in this tab and you’re able to figure out rather quickly who’s new.

Again, we don’t encourage cheating boyfriends or girlfriends to go on this app, but if you’re looking to catch someone cheating, this would be the place to find them.

Meet Me

The meet me feature is shown to the user in a card stack format similar to Tinder, Bumble Or Hinge.

These are typically curated users that will swipe like they traditionally would on any other mobile dating app. Users will appear in the card stack who will swipe right and left on the meet me feature.

This feature is a bit more random than the other two features, however this is another spot where new members will sign up.

Premium members are able to have more depth into the meet me feature, but they’re still available within the meet me tab.

Do I Get Notified If Someone New In My Area Joins

No you don’t get notified via email or notification. Plenty Of Fish does send out emails that allow the user to know when they connect with another user (also other configurations, based on the user’s preferences).

Go to the notifications tab and set the preferences of how you’d like to be notified when someone matches with you, or views your profile.

These notifications can be a bit overwhelming so we tend to leave these email notifications off and just leave the push notifications on.

The main point to remember is that you’re not notified once someone new joins Plenty Of Fish, you’ll need to actively seek out new members and make contact with them.


There’s no way to be notified if new members join the mobile dating service Plenty Of Fish. There is however ways to seek out if someone new has joined.

Using Plenty Of Fish’s powerful features such as the search queries, nearby, and meet me tabs will help provide an insight on whether a new person joined.

If you live closer to a city, it may be tough to sort out all of the new years, especially in densely populated cities like New York or Philadelphia.

However, suburban towns are a bit easier to see who joins, as the users are few and far between the amount of active users that are located in the city.

So join Plenty Of Fish and use their powerful features to start looking for your true love today!
